I'm against a war in Iraq...

but maybe I'm not as extreme as the people naively arguing to kick the US out of the UN.

On the other hand, this news of a "Moment of Truth" for the UN tomorrow is really disturbing. The US is acting on its own timetable, which can't be making friends in the UN. Additionally, the US has yet to provide convincing evidence Iraq does indeed have weapons of mass destruction. Sure, its safe to assume that Iraq possess WMDs. But why not show up France? Privately show some evidence to Chirac and have him give in. Russia would surely follow, and China's veto threat has never really been real.

If we go to war without providing time for inspections to continue, there is going to be a huge backlash domestically and internationally against Bush.
